FuBar - RecZone  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)
Version: 2.0.20301
by: wmrojer [More]
New beta version available at http://files.wowace.com/FuBar_RecZone/

Shows information about your current zone and recommends zones and instances based upon your level and faction.

In the bar it can show zone name, sub zone name, coordinate and it will always show a color coded zone range for your current zone. Zone name is color coded based on zone faction, Green=Friendly, Orange=Contested, Red=Enemy. Level range is color coded based on difficulty. Grey=To low, Green=Easy, Yellow=Good, Orange=Hard, Red=You got a death wish?.

The tooltip will give info about your current zone and any instances in that zone. It will also show you a list of recommended zones and a list of recommended instances. By left clicking on a recommended zone or instance you will be shown the walk path to that zone, a list of zones you will need to go through to get there if you are going to walk. (For when you have to walk. ie the first time.)

On the worldmap it displays zone level and instances for zones when you hover the mouse over them. It also displays coordinates for your current location and the cursor location.

Shift-click to insert location in to chat edit box.
Double-click to open worldmap.

This addon now has all the functionality of FuBar - LocationFu as requested.

You can configure what type of information you want to see.
  • Faction
  • Continent
  • Coordinate
  • Instances
  • Battlegrounds
  • Raid instances

You can also configure it to recommend lower and higher level zone, up to 10 levels lower and higher.

The addon is written for FuBar 2.0 with Ace2.

Installation:

Just unpack in your Interface/AddOns/ folder. No dependancies, all required libraries are embeded.

In the works:

Thumbs up Thanks!

Thank you for this. I've been missing Titan RecLevel since I migrated to FuBar.

I found a little error I think. If you use the FuBar menu to disable and enable the AddOn, it gives you an error at line 416.

In order to correct it, I just replaced

Code:
function RecZone:OnDisable()
	RecZoneMapFrame.Hide();  -- line 416
end
with
Code:
function RecZone:OnDisable()
	RecZoneMapFrame:Hide(); -- line 416
end
Best

Thank you for that fix, Lao.

And thank you for porting this mod, I've really missed it! :-)

Hmm...

Just a question: does this offer some more features than the standard FuBar - LocationFu? Because that addon also shows recommended zones.

Nice addon, but please add current loc + zone level to the fubar text.

Seemes a bit uneeded to have two so similair addons, I'd rather use yours if you add those two things.

I would second that. Actually, ckknight is always looking for people to take over the 'standard' FuBar plugins. If you wanted, you could probably just rename this to LocationFu and take that one over entirely.

Hi,

I agree with the last 2 posts but can't be the on to have seconded the opinion (dam it lol) .
I also agree with DSanai about taking over the addon (Locationsfu) with CKKnights approval of course.

I will try this in the mean time and hope you end up combining the 2 as some other authors have already done eg Skillsplusfu http://www.wowinterface.com/download...fo.php?id=5163

Thanks in advance

If you'd only add coordinates to this mod, I could turn off LocationFu entirely. I love it! It feels kinda silly to be running LocationFu alongside it just to have coordinates in my FuBar though, when this one does everything else that LocationFu does, only better.

I agree with everyone below. Make this into a full LocationFu replacement. It'll become a very good replacement indeed!

LocationFu + RecZone = true ???

I will see what I can do about putting in the rest of LocationFu's functionality. But right now I'm a bit busy with FuBar_GarbageFu, that has turned in to a bit of a monster. It's huge code wise. (For a plugin that is). This was also my first FuBar and my first Ace mod. So I have some learning to do.

There is one thing about cordinates, they require an OnUpdate/Scheduled event..... So it will have to be optional.

Great work! I love it!

I've disabled all of LocationFu but for one thing. This is the only thing missing from RecZone now that I can see: No option to hide the minimap's location box.

When I disabled LocationFu, it popped back up, and I didn't see an option to hide it on the RecZone menu. So I've hidden all but LocationFu's icon, and tucked it away, but would be nice to toss it entirely.

Please add support to hide the normal minimap locationbar, as locationfu has.

I was feeling frisky, so I added that functionality to my copy, hehe. Hope this helps!

(1) Add Jostle library to package.

To RecZone.lua, add:
Code:
local Jostle = AceLibrary("Jostle-2.0")
and:
Code:
function RecZone:IsShowingMinimapBar()
	return self.db.profile.minimapBar
end
function RecZone:ToggleShowingMinimapBar()
	self.db.profile.minimapBar = not self.db.profile.minimapBar
	if not self.db.profile.minimapBar then
		MinimapBorderTop:Hide()
		MinimapToggleButton:Hide()
		MinimapZoneTextButton:Hide()
	else
		MinimapBorderTop:Show()
		MinimapToggleButton:Show()
		MinimapZoneTextButton:Show()
	end
	Jostle:Refresh()
end
To function RecZone:OnEnable() add:
Code:
	if not self:IsShowingMinimapBar() then
		self.db.profile.minimapBar = not self.db.profile.minimapBar
		self:ToggleShowingMinimapBar()
	end
To function RecZone:OnDisable() add:
Code:
if not self:IsShowingMinimapBar() then
		self:ToggleShowingMinimapBar()
		self.db.profile.minimapBar = not self.db.profile.minimapBar
	end
To the local options variable, in the map section, add:
Code:
				minimapBar = {
					type = 'toggle',
					name = "Show minimap bar",
					desc = "Show the bar above the minimap that tells the location and allows you to close minimap",
					get = "IsShowingMinimapBar",
					set = "ToggleShowingMinimapBar",
				},

DSanai's modification as integrated in the current version (1.0.12032) has a small bug: the minimap location bar disappears and reappears (toggles) each time the warcraft UI is loaded. I've isolated and fixed the problem: the condition on the first line of RecZone:ToggleShowingMinimapBar needs to be inverted as such:
Code:
if value == nil then
becomes:
Code:
if value ~= nil then
